Tillandsia 'Veronica Orozco'
A lovely small, bulbous-based Tillandsia hybrid by Bill Timm. A cultivar of baileyi x caput-medusae, it is shorter and fatter than the baileyi parent with more leaves and thinner leaves than the caput-medusae parent. The inflorescence is intermediate, a tall scape about as tall and the leaves are long with four or five branches. The color is bright pink with silvery trichomes and lavender flowers, very attractive and long lasting. A nice hybrid that Mr. Timm named in honor of our head Tillandsia grower; Veronica Orozco.
Tillandsia 'Winner's Circle'

Tillandsia 'Yabba' Green Form
A natural hybrid of (brachycaulos x flabellata) from Honduras with really nice lime green foliage and an inflorescence showing the influence of both parents, with short red branches. Can grow potted or mounted.
Tillandsia andreana x funckiana
Two very closely related species that were at one time, lumped together. Til. funckiana is famously caulescent while andreana is stemless. The hybrid has somewhat of a stem, but is broader than the slim funckiana. Still has the needle thin leave of both and the red blush and bright crimson flowers.

One of the faster growers. Will in time form clumps of dozens of plants if conditions are right. From Argentina, it is cold hardy and tolerant of sun or shade. Delicate blue & white flowers have gently twisted petals.
This species of Mexican and Central American forms a 6 inch open rosette of gray-green leaves which flush vivid red when in bloom. Flowers are blue. A lovely, easy to grow, all-time-favorite. An easy growing, sub-mesic plant that grows well when mounted and kept in moderate light and humidity.
An interesting and truly beautiful caulescent species from Paraguay with a very long stem bearing dozens of stiff, bronzy, 4 inch leaves. The inflorescence is a branching red spike with white flowers. We obtained our first specimen in the mid 1980’s from Prof. Dr. Werner Rauh, after he first described the species. We started with a single specimen and have released this plant periodically since. Easy to cultivate in bright light and good air circulation.
Tillandsia cacticola 'Bright Clone'
In general, cacticola of any form is a prize in any collection. Variable in size and other characteristics, but usually a soft rosette of half inch wide gray leaves and a branched inflorescence of lavender with purple-edged white to yellow flowers. This form is medium sized on the scale of cacticola forms, with a taller than typical scape and cluster of branches, all white with normal white and purple flowers. Tillandsia cacticola grows in the Tropical Thorn Forest of northern Peru and often is found growing on cacti, hence the name. Grow on the dry side, bright and airy. Likes fertilizer. Amazingly this plant is grown for cut flowers in parts of South America.
Tillandsia capitata 'Orange'
A large robust species with thick, leathery leaves is a rock dweller from central Mexico. Reddish foliage in an open rosette and a showy, tall inflorescence of orange. A choice plant that is easy to grow and can be potted or mounted.
A very showy plant that strongly resembles the more common Til. foliosa. A beautiful sub-mesic to mesic grower from Veracruz, Mexico that has narrow, reddish-green leaves in a 12 inch rosette, with a 12 inch inflorescence of crimson.
The scape has 1½ inch long branches that are only partly hidden by the long, red bracts. In foliosa, the bracts completely hide the branches. Does well potted or mounted.
